What the Story is About: From the introduction at Seeds of Change:
As is probably evident from the title, “N-Words” is a story about racism. The subject has long been of scientific interest to Kosmatka; in college, he read every issue of a prominent scientific journal, dating back nearly 100 years, and it changed his whole view of science. “I learned that science is fallible,” Kosmatka said, “and that in the wrong hands, it can absolutely be racist.”
